The UK’s top 100 influential disabled people and organisations

The Disability Power 100 is a platform for change.

The Disability Power 100 recognises the most influential disabled people in the UK. It celebrates their ambition and achievements, and provides much needed encouragement to the leaders of tomorrow.

And we don’t stop there.

At the Shaw Trust Foundation, we’re tackling the disability employment gap by demanding that the strengths and talents of disabled people are recognised and that society is inclusive.

    The Disability Power 100 2023 is gratefully supported by our sponsors
